Norut develops technologies adapted to meet challenges in the Arctic climate. Drift ice, icing, pressure ridges and winter storms make strict demands on off-shore constructions. Several industrial operations in northern and Arctic areas demand new thinking on the use of materials, surveillance, emergency response and security. Norut’s unmanned aircraft systems are utilized in an increasing number of areas. The combination of extreme track force in a steep landscape with high precipitation is being tested by the Ofoten Line. We engage in research on Arctic technology because the action is occurring in the north.
Here is an overview of the Norut scientists’ contribution to this year’s Arctic Frontiers.
Drones from Norut will during a seven-week period map how long range transport of black carbon influences the melting of snow and ice in the Arctic.
Four research scientists from Norut Narvik are going on an expedition in the Arctic Ocean with the Norwegian Coast Guard.
Use of remote sensing technology to map vegetation and climate change has earned Norut Tromsø a place in a top-level Nordic research programme.
A new collaboration agreement between the Northern Arctic Federal University (NArFU) and Norut will be signed this week during the Norwegian Days in Arkhangelsk.
Drones fitted with on board air particle sampling instruments can provide precise measurements of volcanic ash particle concentrations.
More than 700 scientists, business people and politicians are gathering at Arctic Frontiers in Tromsø from January 24-29. Norut is one of the conference organisers.
For the first time satellite technology has been incorporated in monitoring of changes in different permafrost landforms.
